MoMA Design Store offers the Divine Proportion Bottle Opener, designed by Oscar Pipson in 2017.
Designers often use the golden ratio for creating aesthetic pieces with appealing dimensions. The golden ratio is what inspired Oscar Pipson when designing this minimalist and intriguing bottle opener. This useful yet beautiful object is the fruit of a collaboration with MoMA and the MFA Products of Design program at the School of Visual Arts.
The Divine Proportion Bottle Opener, made out of brass, is a combination of everything Kelly and Julien are looking for: stylish and innovative products that make daily actions inspiring.
Divine Bottle Opener
After graduating from Victoria University of Wellington, with a double degree in Industrial Design and Management, Oscar spent time working as a Designer at Formway Design Studio, before moving to New York to complete his MFA in Products of Design, at the School of Visual Arts.
For Oscar, his passion for creativity reaches beyond the lines others have drawn, between disciplines. For him, the boundaries between creative disciplines like design, architecture, fine art, film, photography, and fashion have become deconstructed, or perhaps never constructed at all.
The New York iconic Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) welcomes the most influential Modern Art exhibitions. In 1932, MoMA decided to establish the world’s first curatorial department store to democratize architecture and design.
The MoMA Design Store rigorously chooses each item according to strict criteria, such as the ability to enrich and enliven with every use. As an extension of the Museum’s educational mission, MoMA Design Store exemplifies good design with a discerning selection of design objects highlighting the latest materials, production, and concepts worldwide.
As 27 Lisboa, MoMA is making good design objects more accessible to a broader audience. MoMA’s mission does not end there! Each purchase contributes to developing the educational program initiated by MoMA in many New York neighborhoods and worldwide, aiming to improve art accessibility to people of all ages and abilities.
New York is one of Kelly’s and Julien’s favorite destinations. As all art lovers, the MoMA is always on their checklist! They are proud to bring the New York spirit to you by offering MoMA Design Store products in the 27 selection.
